thanks again for this perfect thread - oil changes, thermostat changed
and cleaned up the side skirts, therm housing and pipes while in there - many hours
mainly cos I couldn't use a lift so jackorama ... but very satisfying when the temp guage
reacted where it should and let the oil free

RL just paid for itself for the next 10 years - cheers all!

oh .. and fitted these (centre caps) which I picked up at the recent track day (off a 996 GT3 RS)

Glad that helped, I still get a big sense of satisfaction everytime the thermo opens and the temperature drops.

Also Udo - what was the cause of the water in the oil? Fixed too?
The water must have come from a bunch of short trips with the car just prior to changing the oil... I just changed it a couple weeks back, no water this time.

sorry to bump and old thread, but I am tackling this as soon as my parts come in the mail.

So is there no way to take off the cover without destroying it? Did not order that from pelican, should I get one from the dealer as a precaution?

Udo, when you put it back in, how did you use the wood stick? looking to make sure I have it all down in my head before I tackle the job! I've seen some say to use a vise...which I may do!
